U.S. Department of Transportation Finalizes Tokyo Haneda Awards

MIAMI — The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has finalized its July 20 tentative decision, providing new daytime services to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.

The selected U.S. carriers are American Airlines (from Los Angeles), Delta Air Lines (from Los Angeles and Minneapolis / St. Paul), Hawaiian (Honolulu) and United (San Francisco).

The decision caused American Airlines to lose a planned Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) hub to Haneda. In the recent years, DFW has experienced a significant growth as an East Asian gateway. It currently offers daily flights to five Asian destinations, including Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Seoul, and two daily flights to Tokyo Narita. Japan Airlines, now a Joint Venture partner, operates a daily flight to Tokyo Narita as well on behalf of American.

In February, a new aviation agreement between the U.S. and Japan opened up five daytime routes for U.S. carriers into Haneda. The airport previously was open to U.S. airlines only for night slots.

In addition to these five daytime opportunities, the agreement also grants the U.S. one additional nighttime opportunity at Haneda. DOT awarded that opportunity in May, approving Hawaiian’s uncontested application for nighttime service to Haneda at Kona and Honolulu.

Most of the new Haneda services could begin as early as October 30, the DOT said.
